I pre-ordered the Amazon Kindle Fire today. It should arrive in late November. There don't appear to be any hands on reviews but most of the comments seem to miss the boat.
Most of the whining is about techie junk that precludes some anal jerk from carrying around all the books he stupidly paid for. Just get me to the net!
I think the Amazon Kindle Fire during the Christmas season will beat the Apple iPad. Here is why: a family of five can either buy two iPads or five Amazon Kindle Fire tablets.
PRICE! It costs less than my new Motorola Droid Bionic smartphone. All the stupid Android tablets cost as much as the least expensive iPad.
